Snow day!!!!

I have had a few days off from work starting last Wednesday. I went back to work yesterday and today woke up to a commuter's nightmare (at least this commuter) or a stay at home person's dream. I chose the latter. Earlier this week when the storm first hit I bundled up and trudged down to one of the local markets (the Kiva) for supplies. I felt rather Eastern European, heavy coat, scarves, long heavy skirt (with sweats and long johns)underneath and boots. A pinup girl for Babushka Illustrated. I needed honey and ginger for some honeyed ginger I am giving as gifts. I also stocked up on sweet potatoes and other fixins for soup. I felt so hardy and alive. The following day I walked to an appt and again felt exhilerated from being out in the cold.

I know exactly how you feel. I walked downtown for errands on Monday and will go again in just a few minutes. The grocery store today, thank goodness for the jogging stroller my youngest rides in; it holds a ton of stuff in the bottom.

It was fifty degrees here yesterday. Then the temps fell back into the thirties and forties. Maybe winter would be more fun if we got snow you could play in......Maybe not.

What kind of bush is thatt with the red berries? It's gorgous (sp) in the snow.

Lovely, and even from a distance I can feel your snowy bliss.

It is actually some holly and pine & fir branches made into a loose wreath/garland-y type thingamabob. I love holly-and the way it looks in the snow is snow festive.
